We've been staying at The Tontine for three years now in autumn when my husband fishes on the Tweed. The staff are always so friendly and the rooms are really comfortable. The best thing about staying here as a doggie family is that although it is a quality hotel, it is totally geared up for people staying for the outdoorsy...

Excellent location right on the main street. There is ample parking at the rear. I would advise leaving your luggage at the door before you park at the back as there is a very steep climb back up. Staff very friendly. The room was very comfortable but the bed was a bit high for me as I am only 5ft...

Thank you for writing a review "Elsie S". Apologies again regarding the delay in serving your starter, we all remember the evening well and we were quite alarmed that in serving another large function in our Buchan Room we overlooked the service of the "duo of pates". I do recall that we did apologise to you when you brought this...

Thank you "IAW2013" for your feedback and review. You were allocated one of our "older style bedrooms" but we are refurbishing bedrooms "on-going" as time and finance permits.

A lovely settling for a long weekend away. Friendly staff. Hearty breakfast with a good choice, although the hot food ran out a little too quickly. Nice local shops. Worth a stroll along the river up to the small castle at the top of the hill too.

Thank you "Sootyghirl" for your constructive feedback. Sorry you were disappointed but we will take your comments "on-board". I have to also say that we do often allow guests to "take away" un-finished items from an afternoon tea so we on occasion feel we give too much. A difficult call sometimes but we do strive to give good portions and...
